Cup Loudspeaker Lab Activity
Educational Classroom Kits and Activities
Using the simple materials in this kit, students can build a speaker that can be used with a radio, CD player, or tape player.

  • Students Learn How Conventional Loudspeakers Operate
  • Activities Utilize Framework Science Standards PS3 and PS4
  • Kit Aligns with Published National Standards
  • Assignments and Vocabulary Words Target Common Core Standards
  • Material for Five Speakers Included
Using the simple materials in this kit, students can build a speaker that can actually be used with a radio or CD/tape player. The suggested classroom activities and accompanying worksheets help illustrate the principles behind the operation of conventional loudspeakers - that of converting electrical signals into motion and then sound. Other principles which can be introduced and demonstrated as a result of these activities include electromagnetism, mechanical amplification of sound, and the interaction of magnetic fields, while employing Framework Science Standards PS3 and PS4.

This kit has been aligned with all published National Standards. Pre- and Post-laboratory assessments and vocabulary words all target specific Science and Engineering Practices and common core standards. The teacher guide also contains specific “Did You Know” concepts that link the real world with the scientific standards explored. A student copymaster is also included. This kit includes enough materials to create 5 loudspeakers.

Materials Included:
5 drilled wooden bases
5 wooden dowls
1 roll 32 gauge insulated copper magnet wire
15 ceramic ring magnets
10 bolts with nuts
10 wooden screws
5 washers
10 alligator clips
5 phone plugs with leads
25 bumpter tacks
1 length of solder
Instructions: Teacher’s Guide and Student Guide

Materials Required, Not Included
Scissors
Glue
Tape
Screwdriver
Multimeter
Audio source(s), such as a transistor radio (s), portable CD/tape player(s), stereo(s), etc.
6 or 9-volt battery
Soldering iron or pencil

Time Requirement:
This activity can be completed in one 45 minute class period.
